getUser()

Gets the current user details.

This method is called by the GoTrueClient update where the jwt is set to this.currentSession.access_token and therefore, acts like getting the currently authenticated used

const { user, error } = await supabase.auth.api.getUser(
'ACCESS_TOKEN_JWT',
)

Parameters

  • jwtrequiredstring

    A valid, logged-in JWT. Typically, the access_token for the currentSession

Notes

  • Fetches the user object from the database instead of local storage.
  • Note that user() fetches the user object from local storage which might not be the most updated.
  • Requires the user's access_token.

Examples

Fetch the user object using the access_token jwt.

const { user, error } = await supabase.auth.api.getUser(
'ACCESS_TOKEN_JWT',
)
